Fox News host Ed Henry on Wednesday night accused former President Barack Obama of comparing President Donald Trump to Hitler.
When Prince Harry interviewed Obama in a sit-down BBC interview, the former president made a thinly veiled jab at Trump’s social media presence. “How people interact on social media today could splinter society, especially when used by leaders to divide,” he said.
During the Fox News panel discussion on Obama’s outspokenness on Trump, political writer David Catanese noted that Obama never mentioned Trump by name but also said that Obama’s attack breaks “a recent precedent” of former presidents not eviscerating their successors.
Throughout his presidency, Trump himself has launched a barrage of attacks on Obama, both verbally and by working to unravel his legacy, taking the ax to a range of policies - from Obama’s climate accord, to the Iran nuclear deal, to transgender people serving in the military, and, of course, to Obamacare.
